Columbus In Talks To Direct “Road Crews”

Chris Columbus (“Percy Jackson,” “Mrs. Doubtfire”) is negotiating to direct the action comedy “The Secret Lives of Road Crews” at Paramount Pictures says Deadline.

The story follows a clandestine group of road crew workers who are the last line of defense against a subterranean alien race. Kevin Lund and T.J. Scott scripted the feature, with Craig Mazin doing a re-write and writers being sought for another re-write.

Hal Lieberman is producing and was originally attached back when the project was set up at DreamWorks.
